Question about 1998 Subaru Impreza

1 Answer

I have a 97 impreza outback sport. When I turn there is a light clicking noise from the front. I think my boot is cracked and more, and I was told if it goes on too long I should replace the whole axle. Is that a good idea, or just replace parts? Where should I look for more info? thanks.

Just got for the boot. I'm willing to bet that the axle is factory (garage can look for green paint). IF it is... you've got to work REAAALLY hard to do damage. Mine was popping for months and there was only a tiny tiny bit of wear on the joint. If it's factory, KEEP THE AXLE. It'll run you about $15 per boot for good ones. Try to find neoprene ones, they'll last longer, and do NOT get split-boots.

And FYI.... Subarus, for whatever reason, CHEW them suckers up. So get used to it. But, for my Bu... it's a small price to pay for a great car!

yes. check the wire to the tag light, also any wire you can see in the chassis. your problem is most likely to be outside. best luck to you

Why does car make constant ticking noise from metal expanding and contracting . Even makes ticking noise when running. Same noise you hear when you turn car off.


The exhaust system on your car is stainless steel, and it heats and cools quickly, there is nothing wrong with this. all your hearing is the joints in the exhaust system expanding and contracting. My 2007 impreza 2.5 does the same thing. And when you turn car off the system is cooling off and contracting.

If you have any of the large chain auto parts stores in your area, call them and ask if they do free scans; most do.
If Subaru has maintained the same procedures for a while, and you have checked fluids, etc., you can try resetting the light via the ignition switch:
-Turn on the ignition (don't start) - switch it rapidly between the 'ignition on' and 'ignition off' positions three times.
If the error has cleared itself (not uncommon), the check light will reset. If the problem is still present, it will either stay or come back on.
Our Su has done this a couple of times and with the scanner we have on hand, there was never any particular repeated problem. Just a computer glitch/hiccough -

Normal ?? go back to the dealer and ask him to look up TSB 06-36-06 date June 23 2006 this specifically deals with the rear calipers... not sure about the front.
be that as it may... any time you have warrenty issues with a dealer... keep track of what was done and said.... and ... ask the dealer to contact the area rep and have him involved
